Wisdom Teeth: Complete Care At Mountain View Family Dental
Few people escape a discussion about their wisdom teeth and the best way to handle them. In rare cases, wisdom teeth are missing, a trait that sometimes runs in families. But most of us reach a point of decision about wisdom teeth during our teenage years.
The doctors at Mountain View Family Dental carefully track the development of our young patients. As growth occurs, the jaw and teeth follow a complex series of changes that sometimes require timely orthodontic care for a predictable outcome. Regardless of the course, most patients reach an optimal point in development to discuss their wisdom teeth. Should they go or should they stay?
In most cases, wisdom teeth should be removed to avoid complications in the future. But every situation is unique, and several factors should be carefully considered. This discussion is a good one to have with both the parents and the young person involved. Together we’ll review digital radiographs, including advanced 3D images whenever needed. Our doctor team combines years of experience helping families with wisdom teeth and the decisions surrounding them.
We’re pleased to offer complete service for evaluating and removing wisdom teeth in the comfort of our office. Dr. Heath Snell, trained after dental school at the Audie L.
